   schema:description ""In Vietnam memoirs, J. Robert Falabella, a U.S. Army chaplain for the 25th Infantry Division, relates his experiences sharing the daily hardships and dangers of the combat soldiers with whom he served in Vietnam. Chaplain Falabella, decorated for his bravery under fire, offers eyewitness accounts of search-and-destroy missions, night ambushes, helicopter assaults, and a multi-hour firefight during the first Tet Offensive. The chaplain's memoir captures the emotions of his men -- the anxiety and loneliness -- and the effect of the climate and terrain on the mind, body, and spirit. His descriptions of waiting for approaching attacks and visits to the field hospitals are particularly memorable. Running through the narrative are Falabella's observations on the conduct of the war and his efforts to make certain these combat soldiers are never forgotten"--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
